Insecurity: Ortom Attacks FG To Hide His Failure - El-rufai. Ortom Fires Back

Kaduna State Governor, Nasir el-Rufai, says his Benue State counterpart, Samuel Ortom, uses the insecurity in his state to attack the Federal Government in order to cover up his own failure.

El-Rufai, therefore, stated that he no longer takes Ortom seriously.

The Kaduna governor said this while responding to a video showing Ortom addressing protesters after some killings in Benue State.

The video was played during a webinar organised by the Africa Leadership Group.

Responding, el-Rufai said, “I did not hear what Governor Ortom said (in the video) but I know him and he is not somebody I take very seriously, frankly. He has other issues of governance that he is using the Federal Government as a punching bag to distract attention from his failures.

“Go and find out how many months’ salaries are being owed teachers and public servants in Benue State then you can understand a lot of what Ortom is doing.”


El-Rufai, however, admitted that there is a fundamental problem with the capacity of the Armed Forces and the police.

“We have a serious national problem. I wouldn’t say we are totally helpless but we are in a situation where the Armed Forces and the police have lost significant confidence in themselves and their institutions,” he said.

The governor said security agents need more weapons and there is a need to increase the number of operatives.

Ortom fires back

EL-RUFAI IS ONE OF THOSE WHO HAVE MISLED PRESIDENT BUHARI

We read the statement credited to Kaduna State Governor, Nasir el-Rufai in which he accused Governor Samuel Ortom of using the insecurity in his state to attack the Federal Government in order to cover up what he termed as the Benue State Governor’s failure.

We want to believe that El-Rufai was wrongly quoted. A man who has failed in several aspects as Governor of Kaduna has no moral justification to accuse another Governor.

A Governor who has divided the good people of Kaduna against one another by not hiding his hatred of indigenes of the state on account of religion and ethnicity is not qualified to judge another Governor on any issue whatsoever. A Governor who chose a Muslim deputy in a state where Christians have a huge population is certainly not one to preach unity and peaceful co-existence.

El-Rufai’s attack on Governor Ortom is merely to make him look good before the Presidency. He has apparently fallen out of favour at the Villa and wants to use Governor Ortom as a launch pad back to reckoning. How has he handled his own problems in Kaduna? This is a man who has insulted almost every prominent Nigerian including the late President Umaru Musa Yar'Adua and former President Olusegun Obasanjo; a man who is his former boss and one who brought him to limelight.

Nigerians have not forgotten the unprintable things El-Rufai said during Goodluck Jonathan’s time as President. He insulted the then President and publicly supported terrorists attacking parts of the country. His statements on the abduction of Chibok girls and several other acts of terrorism are still fresh in our minds. El-Rufai is on record to have said repeatedly that Fulani people must retaliate any wrong done to them no matter how long it takes.

Is Governor Ortom responsible for El-Rufai’s inability to ensure peace in Kaduna State where bandits have taken over some communities while kidnappings and killings occur on daily basis?

El-Rufai admitted to paying Fulani herdsmen whom he invited from other West African countries in the name of stopping attacks in Southern Kaduna. Since he made the confessional statement, attacks on the people of Southern Kaduna have escalated. This is why he wants men of good conscience like Governor Ortom to be silent to pave way for the conquest and expansion agenda to succeed.

Kidnapping has become a common crime in Kaduna State under Nasir el-Rufai.
Aside the much celebrated cases, it has been estimated that at every given time, not less that 300 persons are abducted in Kaduna by kidnappers who are always identified as El-Rufai’s kinsmen. He pays them billions to embolden them. He has turned the state into one of the most unsafe places to live in Nigeria today.

Talking about taking someone seriously, if other Nigerians take El-Rufai seriously, we in Benue do not do same. A man who has no regard for humanity does not deserve our attention.

Nasir el-Rufai is a sycophant, ethnic champion and religious bigot who hates anyone who does not share the same faith with him. He is among the very few persons who have misled President Muhammadu Buhari. El-Rufai is one of the real enemies of this country who do not hide their divisive tendencies by elevating nepotism and ethnicity above the good values that have held Nigeria together over the decades.

Nasir el-Rufai doesn’t possess the credentials to counsel anyone on payment of salaries and the welfare of workers. This is a Governor who recently sacked 4,000 workers for no just cause. He ought to be ashamed of himself. What happened to the lofty promises he made to Kaduna people in 2015?

The Kaduna Governor should know that only two days ago, the people of Benue State met at a stakeholders meeting in Makurdi and unanimously passed a vote of confidence on Governor Ortom in recognition of his performance. That meeting was attended across party lines with leaders of All Progressives Congress, APC also present.

El-Rufai and his conspirators must note that Benue State will not repeal the Open Grazing Prohibition and Ranches Establishment Law, no matter the amount of blackmail, hatred and threats they wage against Governor Ortom.

We advise the Kaduna State Governor to focus on addressing the numerous problems he has created in his state and leave Governor Ortom to lead Benue in peace.

El Rufai is right. I love the way he speaks his mind without giving 2 bleeps. in Benue nobody takes Ortom seriously, even his few supporters praise him in public but castigate him in private. As a matter of fact, he is the most hated person in Benue state. If you doubt me go to any Benue Facebook page and see for yourself.
Ortom is the worst governor in the history of Africa, besides leading a hate campaign against fulanis, he has done nothing for Benue

Elrufai should shut up.
Bandits have taken over Kaduna villages, highways and forests.
Even with his security, Elrufai dare not travel by road himself.

It would have made more sense if Elrufai's own state isn't in turmoil.

The moment Ortom gave approval for vigilantes to carry arms, el idiot became jittery.

El idiot is truly a terrorist. He was comfortable with fulanis killing innocent Benue people and taking over their lands, but the moment they grew balls, he is now uneasy.

Dear Benue People,

We all know you are peace loving, but don't fall for the snake's gimmicks, go all out into the forest and unleash all your angers on any demon you find.

Don't hesitate to take back your lands.

If you fail now, you fail forever.

Dear Ortom,

This shows that you are doing something right. Please intensify efforts. The demon is trying to distract you. Do not fall for his psychological gimmick.

Infact channel all your energy and resources to liberate your lands and people. Forget about any other thing apart from providing food and shelter for your people.

Save them. Give them more arms, vehicles and all.

This is a chance of lifetime. Do not fail. I repeat, do not fail.

And to other Nigerians, even though you are peace loving, let's embrace the philosophy of unforgiving nature of the fulanis.

If they kill one of yours, please even if it takes months, retaliate so hard. Do not forgive them because they don't forgive.

The fulani herdsmen deliberately destroy farms for their cattle to feed on and kill the farmers if they protest.

Let's do it fire for fire. Nobody have monopoly of violence, retaliation and terrorism.

Let us all tow that path.

Dear Benue and Taraba People, do not stop. This is your chance to take back your lands.

Fx(k them all off from your lands that they conquer. It belongs to you and your generations yet unborn.

Go and pay people's salaries . It's true, there's only news of insecurity coming out from Benue and this issue of owed salaries keep taking the backstage. Last two weeks alone, 13 soldiers including a Captain was murdered in Benue yet he keeps blaming FG. It is because PMB is lenient, can you kill 13 soldiers during OBJ's time and still have that community standing? Go and pay people's salaries sir.
